Inventory Not Being Managed by POS System


How come my inventory is not being managed in Magento from my POS system?  Not only do I need it managed from my POS system, but I'd also like products to be taken off the website when inventory for that product gets down to 3 items left.  Can you help?



You can set these options in Magento by going to Inventory under the Magento System > Configuration menu option.  Here are the settings you need to change:

  1. Change Decrease Stock When Order is Placed to Yes.
  2. Change Display Out of Stock Products to No.
  3. Change Backorders to No Backorders.
  4. Set Qty for Item's Status to Become Out of Stock to 3.
